Token Transit

St. Joseph Transit bus passes can now be purchased using a new mobile fare app, Token Transit. Token Transit is a free app that allows riders to purchase their bus passes on their smart phones using a credit or debit card. The app displays a digital pass, eliminating the need for a paper pass. It also eliminates the need to purchase a monthly pass at a specific time. The digital pass is valid for 31 days, starting whenever the pass is activated. Customers may also purchase single ride tickets, 10-Ride Ticket Books and Deviations. The app allows customers who are eligible for a discounted fare (seniors, disabled, and youth riders) to purchase their discounted fares. Learn more about how to get the app on your phone.
